CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Permabit Technology Corporation, the industrys leading innovator of scalable, data-reduced storage for enterprise archiving, today announced the company has been awarded two additional patents for its secure data deduplication technologies. The patents demonstrate Permabit’s technology leadership in ensuring data integrity of deduplicated data and innovative new applications for deduplication.

  • United States Patent No. 7,318,072, “History Preservation in a Computer Storage System,” covers Permabit’s technological innovation which solves a common and serious challenge regarding deduplicating storage systems: how to ensure that deduplicated data is never accidentally deleted while still part of an existing file.

  • US Patent No. 7,356,701 covers Permabit’s concept of using a content-addressed repository to deduplicate previously broadcast data.

“With today’s nonstop data growth and the proliferation of regulatory demands for retaining data for long periods of time, data deduplication is perhaps the most important technological development of the past 10 years. However, the devil is in the details. If deduplicated data cannot be guaranteed to be kept intact, and files may be accidentally deleted or damaged, it’s a risky proposition for businesses to deploy,” says Jerome Wendt, President, DCIG. “These patents demonstrate that Permabit has created an industry leading solution for long-term data storage that integrates advanced deduplication methods which enterprises can feel safe implementing for their mission critical data.”
